Muziqa, Muziqa! – Favourite Ethiopian Soul & Dance Tracks of the 60ies & 70ies


As an Annex to the Haulu Mergia set, here is my first “ethiopique” set.

Some of the tracks I played last week at the great Hailu Mergia concert & I was uploading some of them here (the Hailu mergia set), but was asked if I could do a pure ethio mixtape of 60 & 70ies soul &dance songs, so I took a few more tracks, a wedding song in the end & a slow version of the classic yekermo sew
